Navigate with Garmin caliber GPS data on the mobile device of your choice. The GLO 2 receiver brings you the best of both worlds by combining GPS and GLONASS receivers with Bluetooth® wireless technology so you can enjoy precise position information on your iPad®, iPhone® or Android™ device.
The Accuracy of GPS and GLONASS
GLO 2 can receive position information from both the GPS and GLONASS satellite constellations, allowing it to connect to up to 24 more satellites than devices that rely on GPS alone. This allows GLO 2 to lock on to satellites approximately 20% faster and remain connected even at high speed. What’s more, GLO 2 updates its position information at 10 times per second; that’s up to 10 times more often than the GPS receivers in many mobile devices.
Set It up and Go
Using Bluetooth technology, the GLO 2 receiver wirelessly pairs to your mobile device. Just set GLO 2 within range of your mobile device, and in moments, you’ll be receiving the GLO 2 receiver’s position data. It has up to 13 hours of battery life to keep your position on long trips, and charging GLO 2 between uses is easy with the included USB cable or optional 12/24 V vehicle power cable. The optional friction mount keeps the receiver safe on your dashboard and in full view of satellites.

A friend is using this for airline flying. Modern 777 cockpit does not allow ipads to display position. Has flown with the Bad Elf and experienced spotty connection issues. This thing is rock solid for up to 4 crewmembers to connect to and even indicates upstairs in the rest area. 13 hour battery almost does an atlantic round trip from the states, and will do any destination one way. It is a huge safety necessity during taxi and a nice addition in all phases of flight. 5 stars for the glo 2

Works well, long battery life. Easy to connect via bluetooth.
